Photographer's Note

A sculptor, to the right, is working on a stone head representing K'inich Kan B'ahlam of Palenque, heir to Pakal the Great, who died February 20th (or 26th), 702 CE, age 66 years. Glyphs indicate that "he entered the path", i.e. the route to the underworld, and the panel was intended to mark his death. Emiliano Zapata, on the Rio Usumacinta, was an early Olmec, then Maya settlement.

This photograph was taken at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Gatineau, Québec.
